SOLD: This Stanley rosewood gauge has everything you need. It’s a mortise gauge, a marking gauge and a marking gauge for curves.
• It’s a mortise gauge. It has double pins that are micro-adjustable from the end of the stem. The brass wear plate on the head makes it a durable tool.
• It’s a marking gauge. Turn the the head 90° and there is a single-pin gauge that bears against the brass wear plate.
• It’s a gauge for curved work. You can mark mortises or a single scratch line off of a curved surface by rotating the head 90° and reinserting it onto the beam. That bring the brass curved plate into the mix.
All in all, this is an effective and well-made gauge. As such, it has seen a lot of miles and the edges are worn down by more than 100 years of use. It is, however, a 100-percent ready-to-go-to-work tool. I’ve used it for many years as my primary marking gauge.
Price: $60 plus $6 domestic shipping.
About Tool Sales on My Blog
Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.
Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.
While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
